Paper Abstract

Under certain experimental conditions a semiconductor-discharge gap structure can be used as detector for spatio-temporal resolved measurements on IR radiation. We investigate experimentally the speed properties of this kind of converter by using a streak camera system and a semiconductor laser diode ((lambda) equals 1.3 micrometers ). The experimental results are compared with the predictions of a simple theoretical model.
